At 17, Stella has spent most of her life in the hospital. Born with Cystic Fibrosis, she follows a strict regimen full of boundaries and limitations. Her hyper-discipline is put to the test when she meets Will, a charming yet rebellious patient with the same illness. Despite a growing mutual attraction, they cannot stand closer than 6 feet apart without risking cross-infection. But what happens when physical restrictions get in the way of a blossoming romance?

Also released in cinemas this week

New to Order on DVD

Wildlife

Leading the DVD releases this week is the directorial debut of actor Paul Dano, sharply depicting a disintegrating marriage in 1960s Montana through the eyes of a fifteen year-old boy caught between his warring mother and father. As emotionally turbulent as the fires which are raging through the Montana countryside, Wildlife is an often bleak, sometimes hopeful, portrait of innocence lost, carried to its bittersweet conclusion by stunning performances from Carey Mulligan and Jake Gyllenhaal.
